Default Lotus Europa S

Lotus fans, start saving up. The new EuropaS is on its way. Glad that Lotus have finally made something that looks to me like a practical version of the Elise. If you never bought the Elise coz u thought it was impractical, well then that's one excuse thrown out. So, like I said, start saving up.

Looks nifty, I like it. I liked the original Europas too.

Looks like an Elise, a Cayman, a Sagaris, a Crossfire and the new XK, all blended into one.

The road tests in some magazines state that it is pretty disappointing. It is a bit too soft for traditional Lotus values and too expensive. A 300ZX provides more thrills apparently
